for ronald reagan and, been in the bush administration and the problem with the obama administration is not that it is too assertive but that we are retreating all over the world as unfortunately, emboldening our enemies and if rand paul wants to run to the left of the obama administration, he's free to try and maybe there is more support than i think but i'm doubtful that there really is. >> chris: nina, the president clearly thinks that, quote, bringing our troops home, not in a rush, but, steadily, and, eventually, is a winning message and in the last campaign, frankly, republicans were not talking a lot about open-ended foreign commitments. so does the g.o.p. need to recognize and respond to a war-weariness in the country. >> i think the drone issue and war-weariness are two different issues and rand paul's war on drones is a sort of a war on a pretty successful fight against terrorism, right now and i'm not sure where it gets us. i agree with bill. you know, the g.o.p. doesn't lose by being a strong party of national security. what we -- what the republicans lost were moderates.
. the aims nasa facility science center as well. the obama administration program, literally hundreds of chinese nationals are gaining access to some of our most sensitive and advanced technology and data. >> they are, and some of the information given to me as to where he had an office and what was available to them -- and keep in mind he has already taken one laptop, one computer back to china. they already have a lot of the information. much of the game that china has made in space has become from their stealing. much of their economic gain has come from stealing. not only in national security but an issue of jobs. as we create a job, they're taking it out of the bottom of stealing it. they're basically stealing. these are fundamentally people who do not wish america well. lou: in his instance he was a representative of -- well, he is hardly alone in this effort to spite, to carry out an espionage against the united states. there are other, some estimated 200 chinese nationals who may not have security clearances in and of themselves, not hired by nasa directly, but art frankly her
intended. i think the obama administration they want to push people into medicaid. they want to push people into government care. single pair, government care i think is their ultimate objective. >> bill: everybody gets their bills paid by the government? >> yes. so the healthself is totally politicized. you vote for the politician who gives you the most. that's what they have in britain and it doesn't work. i think that's what they want to have here. that's the obama administration. >> bill: now, i'm assuming there will be a backlash by people who don't want to pay more for burgers and pizza against the obama care and democratic party. am i going to be wrong on that? >> i think you are right. >> bill: so you see that once awful these things kick in, and once everybody sees the unintended consequences, prices rise, people lose their jobs. people -- hours get cut back, then the folks are going to say you know this isn't a good idea. >> the backlash i think will be political. there will be a lack of political support for the obama administration going into 2016. a lack of support for democrat
around and the unethical behavior by tom perez while he was ag under the obama administration's doj. >> sean: why don't we go over the inspector general's report, basically misleading the commission on civil rights about the lawsuit, it relates to the new black panther party back in 2008, those were the guys standing outside the polling place in philly banging on batons and wearing military gear, as we're putting up on the screen here. why don't you explain that. >> yes, just to set the context, remember that these thugs were harassing not only people who were voting at that philadelphia precinct in the fall of 2008, but also harassing and hurling poisonous racial epithets and demagoguery and people trying to monitor the voting booth there. it's thanks to brave whistle blowers within the goj, christopher adams and christopher coates the head of the rights section and who blue the whistle, and the monkeying around by many of the appointees, the polittization, and even under the administration, they had agreed that these people were culpable for violating voting rights laws. >> sean:
that this and the answer has to be no. the fact that he got that shows that the president obama administration has carried off this robust war by drones. 4,800 people have been killed by drone strikes under the obama administration. that is an astounding number. i think it is troublesome. the fact that rand paul had to go to such lengths to get that simple answer that is what resonated. i don't think it advanced the drone question that much but that is the beauty of politics in 2013. rand paul is pretty low key? he gave almost a lecture here. he is charismatic but he doesn't a -- >> i'm glad to see a politician stand for something, has core values. in something. stand up for something. on the other hand you have john mccain stuffing his face for president obama. if he had core values and core con visions he did not like what rand paul stood for, go to the filibuster and call him on it. what did he do? he waited until the next day, had a nice party with president obama, fed that fat face of his and then came back to the floor and made an issue about it. i understand that john mccain is a big supporter of t
arizona and the obama administration. this time, over the state requirement that those who seek to register to vote provide proof of u.s. citizenship. arizona registration form requires more proof than the simpler federal form. on which applicants check a box, ind kateing u.s. citizen think, sign attesting to that fact and drop it in the mail. arizona argues that it doesn't conflict with the federal form but serves as an additional barrier against voting by non-u.s. citizens. >> if somebody is willing to fraudulently vote that person would be willing to sign fals falsely. so the signature doesn't mean anything. we need evidence that the person is a citizen. >> justice scalia sounded skeptical of the streamlined federal form. "check off, i am a citizen, right? so it's under oath. big deal. if you are willing to violate the voting laws i suppose you're willing to violate the perjury laws." despite issue the arizona officials say they are facing justices like ruth bader ginsberg said there are statutes saying they must accept and use the federal form period. that is the end of it.
in their concern about iranian proliferation. >> rose: the issue at the beginning of the obama administration was settlements, right? >> yes, indeed. and i think that's where the obama administration, as aaron pointed out, made a mistake i think they hit netanyahu very hard on settlements while at the same time extending a hand to the iranians. that did not go over very well with a variety of israelis. here israel was a staunch ally of the united states. had come up 16 years in which presidents were in love with their israeli counterparts as aaron pointed out and here was the new president taking a very hard stance on settlements while at the same time telling the iranians he'll talk to them about anything anywhere at any time i think that could have been handled differently. i think obviously we've been dancing around the issue of settlements for a very long time. this is a central issue in the conflict. >> rose: aaron, are the israelis doing things that make a palestinian settlement increasingly difficult? >> sure. >> rose: are they doing it because they don't want to see a settlement? they
and the obama administration are andrew jackson. we have been through this before. the democrats tripled the budget. it is not true that it was reagan's tax cuts that led to the deficit. the problem was for every additional dollar that came in to the internal revenue service, the democrats were spending another $3. then reagan's knuckle head of a vice president, the first george bush, unable to learn from the first kick of a mule, made the exact same deal with democrats. he raised taxes in exchange for promised cuts in spending. hikell gladly take a tax today for a cut in spending on tuesday." once again, democrats raised spending. it would be like journalists going to tribal chiefs circa 1890 and saying sarcastically, "are you telling me you would not give of 1 acre of land for a guaranteed promise of 10 acres of land?" and then 10 years later, "we are going to be needing nebraska and south dakota, too." obama claims he wants to keep taxes low for the middle class. let me tell you for the 400 people still left in the middle class, they could not be happier. obama also said he had to shu
teacher furloughs to longer airport lines to criminal its running free, the obama administration has lied to the american people. they have even closed the white house for public tours. remarkably, the many false claims from the white house had even prompted some in the mainstream media to push back. one of the reasons why the white house thought it could get away with it is because the media has always been in their back pocket. you just have to look at all the obama scandals, with the latest being the tragedy where four brave americans died -- were murdered in benghazi, to see the media's complacency. the obama administration has not been forthcoming with information on benghazi, and congress has failed in its oversight responsibilities. citizens united recently launched a campaign calling on members of congress to create a select committee to investigate fully the benghazi tragedy. it has been over 30 years since jimmy carter's presidency that a united states ambassador has been killed overseas. now six months after benghazi, there are more questions than answers. it is vitally importa
three times higher in the obama administration. the number of new establishments, entrepreneurial activity, for the year-ending march 2010 --march, 2010, was lower than any other year since the series began. since they began keeping record, mr. speaker. in 2010 under this administration's stimulus policies, entrepreneurial activity was at the lowest level in america since we began keeping records. i don't mean at the lowest level of people succeeding. i mean the lowest level of people trying. the lowest level of people trying, mr. speaker. what does it mean about us? what does it mean about our future when we have beaten the enthusiasm to try out of our people? frightened it out of our people. mr. speaker, that's not just a department of labor report. we talk a lot about that. what is it that the guys down at the agencies are producing, those technical reports. ill a tell you what they are producing, i'll tell you the impact it's had. the federal register, mr. speaker, i don't he know if you picked up a copy since you have been here. the federal register measures all the new regul
but at a lower rate than it should be. we lost over 700,000 government jobs during the obama administration despite all the right wing talk about him the fact is the deficit is getting smaller and there are fewer and fewer government jobs. the addition of jobs we had last month, 236,000 jobs, 70 those of those were business service jobs. that's a good sign for the future. accountants office workers being hired that employeers expect more business in the future. but the sequester and the press for austerity and the increase of social security tax are all slowing our progress to where we should be. >> michael: of course these companies would be hiring accountants now because they're making so much damn money because they're not paying enough wages to their workers. that's part and parcel of how it works. >> yes remember a fundamental tenant of the chicago school and i went to the chicago school is to get rid of unions, that means driving down wages. i just reported in my column in tax analysts, tax notes, if you take the average increase of income for the bottom 90% of americans from 1966 whe
700,000 are waiting more than a year. and the obama administration, the number of disability claims waiting over a year has gone up by 2,000%. if you're in new york or los angeles or reno, you're waiting over 600 days for the care and benefits that you deserve. that's why i'm in washington this week and that's why many iraq and afghanistan veterans are in washington. >> say that again if you will, paul. we've heard this, the numbers are becoming more outrageous by the month. what's happening at the v.a. is an absolute disgrace. please talk about, again, how long are wounded warriors having to wait for treatment and care in america? >> well, one of them with me here in washington this week is zach mccowan, he's been waiting 900 days. the system is broken, thousands of veterans are stuck in it. and nobody's really paying attention. we need the president's attention on this now. he's ended the iraq war, but he can't end the v.a. paperwork backlog. right now 97% of v.a. disability claims are on paper. in the year 2013, 97% are still on paper. this is a story this week that really needs
. but by then the philosophy of the obama administration is that it's going to be too late. so now is the opportunity that we are going to be hearing from our panelists and each of us will present a little bit of a different perspective on the panel about what happened that night and then i'll have some q&a interaction with them and we'll see if even if we cannot answer the questions for you, perhaps we can help people to understand what are the right questions so that some day wlrks it be a presidential candidate or a cnn moderator or senators having dinner with the president, maybe somebody can come up with the right questions to ask about benghazi and then hope and pray that some day we will get the proper answers. let me turn the time over to our panelists to let them make their remarks. roger. >> thank you very much congressman. please hold your applause. thank you very much. i have somebody paying attention up front. let me begin by making a very stark appraisal by what we learned from benghazi. and i just ask you to remember the famous commercials during the 2008 campaign about the 3:00 a.m. phone cal
this thing here now with this obama administration where they treat our enemies with much more concern than they do our friends. >> sean: here we have sequester weekend and he gave morsi 250 million taxpayer dollars and yet, he's closing down the white house. let me ask you about the other three situations i brought up. north korea, russia and china. these are significant. there seems to be willingness to take liberties with this president. >> sean, they're pushing a president they think is a-- is weak. >> sean: is a weak president. >> i hate to say that. >> sean: isn't he weak because he hasn't responded, has he? >> sure, the idea of leading from behind says okay, you want to lead from behind we're going to push you as far as we can push you until we get some kind of reaction and get as much advantage as we can. this whole idea of basically destroying our navy is idiotic when you consider that in china, a great debate is going on as to how big their navy should be. because they want to control the pacific, or some of them do. china, after all, is a dynamic society. there are people in chin
security council in the obama administration and aaron david miller, fellow at the woodrow wilson international center. welcome, both. first, tommy, why did it take so long for this president to get to israel? he had a lot on his plate there were enormous economic challenges to deal with back home. but not every president going to israel in his first term, george bush didn't. this is great opportunity for the president to sync up with prime minister netanyahu on iran, sir yarks the critical issues of the region where israel is in the eye of the storm. he can also speak directly to the israeli people, via a speech to a bunch of university students. >> aaron david miller, you were a middle east negotiator in a number of white houses and state departments, republican and democratic. what, how much syncing up with prime minister netanyahu do you think is going to take place, realistically? >> it's smart politics, it's smart policy, too. obama has got the most dysfunctional relationship with any israeli prime minister in the history of the u.s./israeli relationship. now benjamin netany
difficult for patty murray and the obama administration to follow up on. >> well, but it fits in with what the president wants which is to give more tax relief to the middle class. i simply have to say as i always do, that though is something that flies in the face of what a lot of economists and former president clinton say have to happen over the long term which is taxes need to go up on the middle class. >> the president has been questioned about fairness and saying if you look at sort of the way that dow is going, you look at sort of the incredible profits on corporations. they're not paying their fair share. but to go back to the issue at hand, i really think the speaker -- >> how do you define fair, cornell? if you tax 100%, you don't get rid of the debt problem. so what is fair? >> i think it is a visceral main street issue. when working americans are paying sort of more taxes than warren buffett, i think you get the sense that it not fair. when you have large corporations and big oil companies raking in huge profits and not paying taxes that, is not fair. >> if you look at the oil
controversial situation. the obama administration releasing illegal aliens from prison who have been convicted of crimes in this country. >> did you release any resittist drunk drivers? >> yes. >> how many? >> i don't have the exact number, but we have released many individuals who had dui offenses. >> repeat offender dui. >> repeat offender dui. congress has not provided that dui is a ground of removal. in fact most misdemeanors is not a ground of removal. it's the agency by agency policy that factors that in. i can't order you removed for having committed a dui offense. >> no, you can't, director but you certainly can request a rescheduling so you can move money around. this notion that you don't want to rob peter to pay paul, you could have easily done that you could have found $600 to keep these level one violators from being released and don't act like you could not have. here now uma. number of drunk drivers who have killed americans. very troubling. what was this hearing. >> house judiciary committee hearing looking at the fallout from the release of those 2,000 plus detainees who were
] and what have we seen from the obama administration? the obama administration is sending the worst signal to the ayatollahs, at a most critical time. we talk, they enrich. they don't take us seriously. and this leading from behind strategy, it isn't working. think about the message that we are sending. in iraq, the president ignores the advice of his commanders, his own commanders, and rushed to the exit. and what was the result? al qaeda is making a comeback in iraq. and iran has become an important player in iraq. in syria, we sat on the sidelines while over 70,000 syrians were slaughtered. seeding our policy to the vetoes of the russians and the chinese and the united nations to a bunch of united nations bureaucrats. [booing] and in afghanistan, the president has undercut his commanders time and time again. in libya, the administration again lead from behind, and never took steps to secure gadhafi's weapons stash. and do you know where those weapons are now? they are in the hands of islamic radicals in mali, egypt, and syria, used by terrorists to harm us and our allies. and this admin

[applause] there is a direct correlation between the senate stubbornly refusing to pass the budget and the senate selfishly agreeing to go ahead and spend our children's and grandchildren's money. it is time to get outraged about this. never before have our challenges been so big and our leaders so small. when we were here last year the words on everyone's lips and the wish in your heart was for barack to pack up and bubble wrap the nobel and high tops and head back to chicago. the election came and went but the campaign never stopped. our country is desperate for leadership we get instead a permanent campaign. leaders take risks for the good of our country. leaders reached across political differences. campaigners double down on those differences. leaders seek to bring americans together to confront our challenges. campaigners seek to divide and to conquer and to orchestrate crisis after crisis after crisis to exploit. mr. president, we admit it. you won. accept it. now step away from the teleprompter and do your job.

. a lot of us, including myself have faulted this administration and this president for not doing more about -- not even trying to do anything about gun safety during the first four years of the obama administration. but at least, after newtown, after newtown, the president i mean, he went after tucson after gabby giffords, gave a great speech. did nothing. after newtown, he went up there, that had -- that shook up the entire nation and the president got his resolve and he came out and he said, you know we've got a lot of things we ought to do in this area of gun safety to protect our children, which is our number 1 responsibility. we have to talk about closing those loopholes and background checks and making sure that every gun purchase is accompanied by criminal background checks. we have to do something about these straw purchases and make that a more serious crime and eliminate them if we can. we have to do something about these high-capacity magazines. we have got to do something about these assault weapons. i mean, so it's not just one measure. it's
. while israel was out ahead of the obama administration in saying assad must go, you have to understand it's a little jittery in israel at this moment because they look to the south and what happened in egypt, the rise of the muslim brotherhood, given all the uncertainty of who and what would succeed assad if he were to fall, wolf. important the president and prime minister stay on the same page on this one. >> what do they expect to emerge from president obama's visit to israel this week? >> it's interesting. if you talk to key officials here in israel, talk to members of the palestinian leadership, most of them say at first, not much. they think the president's coming here because he has to, didn't come in the first four years. they think he's coming here because he wants to talk most importantly about the iran nuclear cooperation with netanyahu. they expect president obama to give diplomacy more time and expect the important conversation about syria. they don't expect a new peace initiative from the american president. on the one hand, in a sense, what took you so long, but in a brea

existence. republicans are quick to point out that while obama visited egypt during his first term, he never went to israel. they accuse the president of pandering more to the muslim world than to washington's key ally, but not all analysts agree. emma this administration has been a very close ally in terms of security cooperation, as well as strategic dialogue. the israelis and americans are very closely coordinated on important issues, although there are disagreements. >> obama will seek to resolve the peace process between israelis and palestinians during his visit, but back home in washington, very few people are expecting a breakthrough anytime soon. >> back to the middle east, where egypt's justice minister has warned that the lynching of criminals in the streets by angry citizens signals cassette in the death of the state." the comments came after suspected thieves were beaten and hanged by an angry mob in a rural village in egypt. bamut egypt's opposition blames the government for the failure to restore law and order in the country. it says police are using torture in the very same w
